    Okay, I think we need a break from this subject for a bit. 
    Robycop, you were told that it is rude to come in and attack others’ beliefs on their own forum. I personally gave you some leniency because I believe there is room for discussion on what it means to be KJVonly. Some think the KJV supersedes the original manuscripts, yet the manuscripts are how God has preserved His Word through history. You have, however, repeatedly shown that the only authority you will accept in this area is yourself, no matter how contradictory your position may be. 
    I am hereby, in my capacity as moderator, issuing a cease and desist order. This topic is on hold for you; do not attempt to discuss it further.

    This argument is a "Straw Man" and meant to deflect answering a genuine opinion from someone else that views the subject differently. 
    I've studied the qualifications and credits of the original translators and I will take their translation abilities over yours in a heartbeat. Oh, and I'll also take their ability in the form of the KJV. 
    Please keep in mind, although I am certain you have; that this message forum is exclusively KJV and will remain so long after you have gone, as will my opinion. If you came here with the intention of changing it, or to cause trouble over our use of the KJV, you may as well give it up, you will not succeed.

    Actually, I find that much of a modern English use is dumbed down and oversimplified. We don’t use nearly the breadth of language available to us in classic English.  I have no desire to use a Bible whose language has similarly been simplified to the point it can no longer be accurate.
    The scholarly knowledge present in the KJV is also something that can hardly be replicated today. I wouldn’t trust modern “translators” to have the same language knowledge. Ever studied just how educated they were, and how many steps were taken to remove bias or inaccuracy from the text?
     The specificity provided by the singular/plural meanings of thou/you are not always discernible from the context.  And where they are, it really is a lot easier to understand the difference from the word itself, rather than studying it out through the context. Why wouldn’t you want to use what’s available?

    No. The sacrifices and observances of the law never saved anyone; it was always by grace through faith.
    King James Bible  Par ▾  hebrews 10
     
    1For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

    Luke 2:25-35 King James Version (KJV)
    25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
    26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
    27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
    28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
    29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
    30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
    31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
    32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
     
    Every single verse in this passage indicates that Simeon was already a child of God, looking FORWARD toward to Christ.
    He was an "old testament saint".

    My son was involved in an accident, on one of our vehicles, and it looks like we will be sued. I can't go into details on here but sure could use some prayer. To compound that, it's lambing time, we have already lost 10 lambs. Then yesterday someone bought one of our pieces of skid steer/tractor equipment and, by the end of the day, severely damaged it, then stopped payment on our check. I sent their photo to the manufacturer and they said it was abused but I have received no word yet when a replacement part will be sent. I'm feeling pretty low.

    The KJVO myth is man-made & false. Just as God caused the KJV to be made to present His word in the then-current English style, He has caused newer translations to be made to reflect the changes He has caused/allowed in English since 1611.

    heartstrings reacted to HappyChristian in Hubs in the hospital...   
    Yesterday Randy's INR made it to 1.9. This morning he called me at 8:30 to inform me that it had jumped to 2.4!  The doctor was happy - and told him he was going to send him home today! He told him it wouldn't be til this evening because they had to shut off the heparin and they need to monitor things for a bit with that. 
    The Lord's timing is interesting - this is the first Sunday of the month, so we have afternoon service following lunch, and no evening service (usually we go to the nursing home, but because Randy was in the hospital we had to cancel this month). So I talked to Randy about 3 pm. He told me the doctor said he could come home at 5.  Yeehaw!
    Josh drove me to the hospital, and we got there at 4:55.  I helped Randy get dressed and away we went! The hematoma is still there, and still causing him pain. But he is able to bend his leg a bit - and the horrible bruising has really been clearing up (his entire thigh was badly bruised). 
    After 18 days away, Randy is home! The doctor is pretty optimistic that the warfarin is dissolving the DVT.  He'll likely have an ultra sound some time soon just to be sure (at least I hope so!). He has to see his primary doctor as soon as possible, so we'll be calling for an appt tomorrow. They were testing his INR every day, but now it'll stretch a bit further. He goes in Tuesday for it and then again Friday.
    He was able to take a shower for the first time since the morning of Feb. 14. Boy, was he happy! And he didn't miss out on the cowboy baked beans I made for church today. 😀
    I so appreciate your prayer. I would appreciate continued prayer that the DVT would dissolve and that the hematoma would continue to shrink as the muscle continues to heal.
    It's been so great to glance over at his chair and see him in it.

    My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I can identify with serious problems such as this, having gone through some myself lately. Satan is very good at piling things one on top of another in rapid succession so that you can't fully recover from one before another piles on. Then depression sets in. Our God is able to overcome, even in the most dire situations.
    What I have found, beyond any shadow of doubt in my mind is that God does answer prayer and many times He answers in a manner that leaves no doubt that He can and will respond to our fervent prayer. I would encourage you to fully rely on Him and pray without ceasing, then wait  to see the marvelous results.
    In my situation I have seen God work out the problems I face in ways I never would have imagined.

    I know his father was a Baptist, in Scotland. And that he was saved under Spurgeon's preaching.
    While he was Baptist, he was influenced by a few mystics of that day. He also got involved in the holiness movement. I found this article which I think explains things better than I can.

    heartstrings got a reaction from Pastor Scott Markle in Way of Life:The Fruit of Hylesism   
    There's a parable in Matthew 13 about a sower who sowed seed representing "the word of the Kingdom": This "seed" was the real deal.  Now some of that seed fell on "stony places" and sprang up, but it had never taken root. So those in the "stony places" actually heard the TRUE word but only had a "head knowledge" because they neither really trusted Christ nor were indwelled with the Holy Ghost. But that's not what this is about. The Philippian Jailor was not told to do a "repeat after me" prayer. Salvation has to take place in one's HEART, not LIPS.  Teaching kids to sing praises to the pastor, aside from stealing God's glory, is controlling people. Making tons of money off people, sleeping with other mens' wives and underage girls by using "feigned words" is making "merchandise" of them. Teaching "repeat after me prayers" thereby inducing folks to THINK they received salvation, is a "damnable heresy" as the whole world condemns Christianity because of the "pernicious ways". But "damnable heresies" sneak in among us "privily".
     
    1But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

    I like the spirit of the people, they are eager to learn the Bible and are not afraid to invite family and friends to church or to talk with them about the gospel. Biblical truths are preached every service, both in the main auditorium to adults and in the Sunday school with very young children.  The people have humble hearts and love helping the church and others, they are a joy to be around.
